2013 Holzer AgroEcology Workshops
Our workshops provide both the theory and practice for Holzer AgroEcology. There are lecture and hands-on components to all of our workshops.
Curriculum is drawn from the certification program and guided by the project at hand and the interests of the students. Renatured landscapes provide living examples of Holzer's Agro-Ecology. Our workshops strive to help develop as many of these examples as possible.
